The Art of Psychogeography

The Ideas section of today’s Toronto Star has a feature on psychogeography. The article notes a growing interest in psychogeography among artists, architects, and urban planners, and checks out the Glowlab: Open Lab festival and exhibition that wraps up today at Art Interactive in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Through a series of public events, the artists participating in the nine week event explored the effects of the urban environment on people’s emotions and behaviours.

The piece also looks at some Toronto psychogeographic happenings: local artist Jessica Thompson is interviewed about her Soundbike project, and the article gives a nod to the Toronto Psychogeography Society.
